Every Briton over the age of 70 will be told “within the coming weeks” to stay at home for an extended period to protect themselves from coronavirus.

But one caring coffee shop in Hartlepool is looking to support those people who may face months of self-isolation by inviting members of the public to donate items to help support those most at risk.

It is hoped that care packages can be created for people who are elderly and vulnerable who face up to 4 months in self-isolation.

Caring staff at LilyAnne’s Coffee Bar in Hartlepool are appealing to members of the public to donate items which will be used to build care packages in Hartlepool.

They are currently looking for everyday basic items to enable them to build care packages which will be donated to the Poolie Time Exchange who will distribute the items to elderly and vulnerable members.

LilyAnne’s Coffee Bar said “LilyAnne’s are looking to support those elderly and vulnerable people who may have to go into isolation we will be collecting care-package donations of essential items to create care packages which will be collected and donated to the Poolie Time Exchange.

We’ll be accepting donation of hand soaps, toilet rolls, tinned food, rice, porridge and snacks… We feel it’s important that we now support those who are the most vulnerable within our communities by creating care packages.

If you’d like to help and you’d like to make a donation you can drop items off at LilyAnne’s Coffee Bar in Hartlepool between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Saturday.

You can also post donations to LilyAnne’s Coffee Bar, 5 Victoria Road, Hartlepool, TS24 7SE

Everything donated will then be passed to the Poolie Time Exchange who are pulling together volunteer to distribute items.
